Obsessively Grateful - Guest Post

The more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That’s because – for sure – what you focus on expands. When you focus on the goodness in life, you create more of it.  – Oprah Winfrey


We see advertisements of innumerable fairness products on television every day which are highly regressive and belittling. The newspapers are filled with ads in which creams, soaps, face washes and doctors promise a fairer skin. The advertising companies do not put in a lot of thought into making their ads because the formula is simple; if you have fair and flawless skin anyone will fall in love with you immediately. Not only this but girls who do not have a fair skin have no reason to be confident. Being fair means you are beautiful and if you are beautiful the world is yours, you would have a successful life and job.


I never pay heed to my hair even though my tresses are extremely dry and damaged. I have been colouring my hair ever since I passed my high school. I do not invest much in hair products, but I do follow certain YouTubers who teach amazing hairstyles that you can make within minutes. Moreover, they give a bunch of useful tips and home remedies to cure all sorts of damaged hair. I have been following most of them since ages, and I truly trust their opinions. I even applied egg yolks a few days back as they add moisture to your hair. I personally prefer home remedies over all those chemicals that are available in the market. Egg yolks worked well for my hair, so I am definitely going to try some more DIY hair masks.


Color Psychology refers to the effect of color on human behavior and feeling. A century after Newton, Johann Wolfgang Goethe began studying psychological effect of colors. He noticed that blue gives a feeling of coolness and yellow has a warming effect. Goethe created a color wheel showing the psychological effect of each color. He divided all the colors into two groups – the plus side (from red through orange to yellow) and the minus side (from green through violet to blue). Colors of the plus side produce excitement and cheerfulness. Colors of the minus side are associated with weakness and unsettled feelings. Colors used to decorate home can have a profound effect on the emotional well-being. What color you paint your walls isn't just a matter of aesthetics. It's a tool that can be leveraged to affect emotions and behavior.
